We had a good day yesterday celebrating Kelsey's Birthday.

She worked until 4 and her boyfriend and I did a quick cleaning job in her room as we decorated it. It turned out cute even though the streamers that Sam bought had little elephants, giraffes and ducks on it - pretty sure it was made for a baby shower, but he tried.                                                                              

I made her dinner and we had birthday cake from Baskin Robbins.
We were all together for cake except for Makenna and Michael - he had to work and Makenna went home after a week of spending the night with me. But at 11:45pm there was a knock at the door - it was Michael with a card in his hand and a big smile on his face asking if  Kelsey was awake.
He made a great ending to a beautiful day. The fact that he remembered and acknowledged his sister's birthday is confirmation that my son is back... God is good!

Tonight we're celebrating with family and friends .

Have a beautiful Saturday!

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.      

I decided to grow my hair out due to a bad h…

Have An Open Heart

As I was sorting through pictures this morning I came across pictures of my seven-year-old granddaughter with girls that she met for the first time on a 2 day stay in Prescott. I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
